2014 Eagles Nest/City of Concord House
Jazman and her four children lived in a dangerous neighborhood where they witnessed violence regularly. Jazman felt unsafe and wouldn’t allow her teenaged sons play outside unattended. In addition, their home was leaky, drafty, and moldy with poor plumbing and HVAC systems. So when a family member told her about the Habitat homeowner program she quickly embraced it.
Jazman enthusiastically put in her sweat equity hours and kept putting in more. She juggled her work, family, and Habitat commitments while keeping her eyes on God. Jazman’s belief that God should be at the center of her life led her to place a Bible in the footings of her home saying she wanted a house truly built on faith.
By the time her home was completed in November 2014 she felt competent to do many home repairs. Jazman said, "I could probably build a couple houses from all I've learned. I know for sure that if anything breaks I am able to become Ms. Fix-It.”
Jazman’s home sits between two other Habitat homes and the neighbors’ friendship provides support for each other. Her home is also known as the Eagle’s Nest because Davis Dawson led the construction volunteers for his Eagle Scout project – providing Jazman with an even greater sense of community. Now her children have a safe place to play and grow.
